MLB wants to replicate the excitement of the NFL draft. That will never happen. NFL draftees are much more popular/well known than MLB draftees, as many of them just played for 3 years in front of 100,000 fans per game in some of the most watched TV of the year, whereas many of the MLB draftees are playing for their high school or a small college. Also, many MLB draft picks won't sign and even if they do, they won't reach the majors for many years so they can develop in the minors/service time manipulation 

 

And there's no trades allowed.  And it's 62 rounds (or at least was.)  Can't imagine anything more boring than an MLB draft.

I went to FanFest in 2014 here in Minnesota. Didn't make an effort to go to the game (feel like I should have).

 

FanFest seemed to have people from all over the country.  It made me feel like the ASG was a decent draw.

Funny - I was at that one as well. My now ex-wife was getting an award for her job, so we went for a few days in the middle of the week.

 

For anyone who has a chance, the thing is a really fun way to take in a lot of baseball "stuff". Memorabilia. Other fans, Get a baseball card of yourself for free.

The Orioles have made a pitch for Baltimore to host this year’s All-Star Game

 

 

It's a shame that Camden Yards has only fielded the ASG once in its near 30 year existence.

Baltimore wanted it in 2016 to line up with the ballpark’s 25th anniversary season, but ultimately got passed up for San Diego.

Some of us fans were pushing for Kansas City to be the host, and have the players wear Negro League uniforms!

We should ask MLB to allow the players to do so in Denver!

I'm still bummed that Milwaukee didn't get it...it would've been the PERFECT place to honor Hank Aaron's legacy, plus we DO got the needed hotels (if we didn't, we wouldn't have gotten the 2020 DNC, however bare-bones it ended up being)

With 2022 being in Los Angeles and Philadelphia in 2026 already awarded, Denver was already in the process for bidding for 2023. From what I've been hearing, the Cubs and Rockies were front runners for 2023, 2024 or 2025, with the Orioles, Rangers and Blue Jays in the mix as well. I would expect Atlanta to try for one of those spots now too.
